This handsome, thorough, and practical guide featuring many full-color photos offers a panoramic view of the region's food traditions. The recipes are easy to follow and range from earthy to exotic. The author's clear, detailed instructions and her sense of humor are most welcome. I have owned this cookbook for some time and refer to it often. I have also given several copies as gifts to friends who like to cook, and they have been truly pleased.
